Gabriela Landa is a photographer and writer trained in anthropology and art history. Czech-born, German-raised, she resides in the U.S. and lived in further several countries.

She earned an M.A. in anthropology from LMU Munich, studied photography with Hartmut Schmidt in Germany, and later worked at the International Center of Photography in New York. She was the U.S. correspondent for the art magazine Atelier and is the author and photographer of the book Transcendent Wisdom of the Maya. Gabriela lectures on Maya traditional knowledge and shamanism.

Photography, writing, and organizing events are my ways of making sense of this world. These endeavors took me to many countries and unique cultures while allowing me to explore different creative processes. I hope to bring my unique perspective of these known and unknown places and people's destinies to your attention as I lived the intensity of traditions, history, and people's daily lives. I invite you to visit here with me through my photographs of Guatemala, New York, Paris, Prague, Sri Lanka, and Hawaii.
